Ascent Trip Report

Not much new to add. The roads leading to the high point are fun to drive. The old farmhouse with its barn across the street are as dilapidated as ever. No one was home at the yellow house near the abandoned buildings. I'd hoped to confirm whether the Hawes family was still in residence, but that will have to fall to some future visitor. Your guess is as good as mine as to which patch of ground here is highest. Not much to see from either candidate point. I did check out the "back way" off Hillman Rd. on my way out. There are a few unposted places to pull over and make the short walk over to the high ground, so if the property ever changes hands there's another access point.
